Cast as a starter in Flamengo x Ceará, Gabigol experienced different emotions in the confrontation. Initially, after Vozão opened the scoring, shirt 9 equalized the match and reached 100 goals in the Brazilian Championship. In the sequence of the match, as the team from Rio de Janeiro could not turn around, the atmosphere of nervousness took over Rubro-Negro, which is why the forward was sent off, as he kicked the ball at Zé Roberto.
See below the bid that determined the red card.
Even with the setback and the negative fact in his 200th match for Flamengo, Gabigol remains optimistic. Although he did not mention the expulsion, he considered that the club has to fight “against everything and everyone” in its path to titles. At the moment, Dorival Júnior’s team is seven points behind Palmeiras, who stumbled in the round and dried up the rival so that an approach in the table did not occur.
“Until the end! Against everything and everyone!”, wrote Gabi on Instagram.
Now, the tendency is for Gabigol to stay out of the confrontation with Vélez Sarsfield. That’s because the red-black top scorer is hanging and, in case of a yellow card, he will be out of the Libertadores final. Therefore, the coaching staff can even exclude the player from the bench to avoid any kind of risk.
“An honor. Thank you for everything, Flamengo”, expressed after being praised by the club.
